I'm drooling.  I once told Kevin that about half of the lines of code in my
mobile apps wind up being debugging code (granted the end up being
commented out, eventually, but I digress).  The biggest issue on mobile has
always been debugging.  I even have a debugging library that I have added
to all my mobiles to help me figure out what is going on when something
doesn't work.  The silent fails dog me even now.  This...this is going to
make the debugging task a lot easier.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
